Parish children and it will be a great way to welcome him into the Parish.
Please Note: Sacraments may only be celebrated by those living within the
St Kevin’s Templestowe Parish Diocese.
We look forward to celebrating this important Sacrament with your child/ren. To help with preparation, we encourage all families to visit our ‘Children’s and Family Page‘ on this website where you will find weekly worksheets and links to a family style liturgy. We highly recommend you come back to Church.
The Sacrament of First Eucharist is a wonderful, family filled and joyous event.
Blessings from all of us at St Kevin’s Parish.
